Kristen is moving her pet frog outside to a new temporary home on the playground -- a special pond. As Keesha, Danny and Curtis learn about tadpoles and frogs from Kristen, Barney appears and leads them all outside to learn more about ponds and pond life. A visit from Stella, with a special frog prince story, and pop-ins from Scooter and Miss Etta add to the fun as everyone enjoys the pond.
